Dallas Cowboys DFS Spin
Tony Pollard rushed 15 times for 77 yards in the Cowboys' Wild Card Round win over the Bucs, adding three catches for 12 yards. Pollard out-carried Ezekiel Elliott 15-13 and saw one more target than the lumbering back. He was able to consistently break off long runs while Zeke spent most of his night getting bottled up near the line of scrimmage. Per usual, Pollard was obviously the more explosive back for Dallas, but Mike McCarthy and Kellen Moore split their backfield evenly. Pollard will be a risky fantasy option versus a stalwart 49ers defense in the Divisional Round.
San Francisco 49ers DFS Spin
Christian McCaffrey had 15 rushes for 119 yards in the 49ers' Wild Card win against the Seahawks, adding two catches for 17 yards and a touchdown. McCaffrey finally has a postseason win in his sixth NFL season. He got off to a slow start against the woeful Seahawks rush defense but a couple well-designed run plays had CMC streaking in the open field. He logged a 68-yard run in the first half shortly before catching a short touchdown from Brock Purdy, who also threw a touchdown to Elijah Mitchell near the goal line. The engine of Kyle Shanahan's offense, McCaffrey has been game script-proof during his time with the Niners. He'll get his touches no matter what in a red-hot 49ers offense that should terrify opponents.
